Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO)

Dog on Lead

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) is legislation that allows a us to address a particular nuisance or problem that may occur in a particular area. The PSPO works by imposing conditions on the use of that area, that apply to everyone. PSPOs are designed to ensure the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces safely, away from any anti-social behaviour.
